RIIIIING! RIIIIING! “Hello, this is Jim Rockford, at the tone leave your name and message – I’ll get back to ya.” Humorous answerphone gag and worldstopping Mike Post theme over stills kicked off this JAMES GARNER fest in fine style. Rockford was an ex-con, living in a “trailer” in on an LA beach, taking on cases others had dropped. Sarky-toothed solipisms came from pal and ostensible rival DS Becker (JOE SANTOS). ISAAC HAYES turned up once or twice, and the last series featured TOM SELLECK as a proto-Magnum private eye.
